Anyone else think the release hype is a bit overdone? It was rare, yes, and it did get good reviews, yes, but there are many RPGs for the system like Shining Force 3 and Panzer Dragoon saga that are rarer, and a "reason to own the system" (which seems to be dropping into POV)

i am not the maintainer of this article, but i will say that this being a reason to own a saturn isnt necessarily exagerating. this game is extremely addictive and when it comes to a game making you want to own a system thats usually where it counts most.also, i do recall many magazines making refrences to this game being a reason to own a saturn. you should probably look it up if you have the resources.Kooshkaboose

This game is absolutely a reason to own a Saturn. If they released the Sega Ages version in English on the PS2, then it wouldn't be - because you could just play it on the PS2. This game is definitely worth owning and playing. It's unique, fun, challenging addictive and varied. Not to mention the story is really good (if a bit cliche by today's standards). Besides, we aren't going by our own opinions, but by the opinions of the magazines and the general public. --Reinhart 13:00, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

On a more Neutral Point of View, the game's popularity is undeniable due to the prices it garners on Ebay, which routinely reach over $100, much like Valkyrie Profile or Marvel vs Capcom 2Cheers, LankybuggerYell ○ 19:42, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Of course, we should indeed always go with (verified) general sentiment over personal, but speaking from my own experience, I'll just concur that this game certainly is a reason to own a Saturn. Timeless appeal. I hope it gets re-released again on some other systems. -- 13:47, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Re:Screenshot request. I'm not 100% on the legality of using these images within wikipedia, but this page has a nice selection of shots of various aspects of the game. http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/saturn/image/197149.html?page=1 Dauthus (talk) 01:16, 28 March 2009 (UTC)


False statements in Reception: Reviews listed under 'Reception' are not factual, and dates significantly precede the launch of the game. There is no way possible that Dragon Force could have "resembled the board games Sniper! and Firepower in 1990", as the game was not released until 1996. There is also no way possible that "A 1992 survey in the magazine of wargames with modern settings gave the game three stars out of five.", when the game was not released until 1996.
